Abstract

Economic and social activities of migrants transcend internal and international as well as rural and urban divides. Migration circuits are not bipolar but rather develop towards a multi-local network of family members putting into question “return” as an often assumed conclusion to a successful migration.
This briefi ng explores the multi-local migration patterns of Kyrgyzstan’s mobile population placing return in a wider context and providing recommendations how to facilitate circular migration and ties to places of origin and new places of work and living.
